Exceptional 10.0
Great stay.
For the price we paid ($120/night for 3) we were extremely happy with Dozen Ryokan. Service was superb. Very friendly staffs. Clean and comfy. No waiting time or issue with the shared bathrooms. I would stay here again if I visit Kyoto again and recommend it to my friends and family.

Good basic place for the money
It was good overall, and I would stay there again, but when we got there the place felt kind of messy and the receptionist was not consistent on the information. But after than, things were smooth and good. We didn't get our room cleaned in the 4 nights that we stayed over, but we are normally pretty clean, so it didn't matter much to us. The room was spacious and the futons great. The breakfast was basic, but good options for what you pay. This Ryokan is close to the train station and to other main attractions. I would stay there again!

Cute little ryokan
Pros: great deal; very traditional ryokan feel; beautiful decor and character; friendly/helpful staff; quiet/residential neighborhood: spacious room with fridge and hair dryer; free breakfast with cereal, salad, fruit, bread; etc. Cons: privacy was a bit of an issue—toilet and shower stalls empty into the hallways and sinks are actually in the hallways, which can be a bit awkward; location is great for access to Kyoto station, but it's a 30+ min walk to most restaurants and sights/temples/shrines
